Notorious Mexican drug lord El Chignon escaped from prison and has been on the lam for decades, but a crack team of documentary filmmakers led by Bill Hader and Fred Armisen are on the case. They’re determined to go where no one else — even the NY Times! — has gone before.
In the latest clip from Documentary Now!, Bill Hader and Fred Armisen play two well-dressed hipster journos whose work is eerily similar to a certain website/TV series that rhymes with “Rice.” The new show comes from the minds of Bill Hader, Fred Armisen, and Seth Meyers, and takes you through the history of excellence and integrity in documentary filmmaking. Explore the series’ archives and watch the trailer for the 294-disc definitive collection of Documentary Now! before the show premieres on Thursday, August 20th at 10P on IFC.
